Increased access to programs will prepare students for the workforce
The College of Information and Communications will now offer all undergraduate majors access to Adobe Creative Cloud, a collection of more than 20 applications and services for web design, photo editing, video editing and more. The move will make it easier for students to use the software on their personal devices and save them up to $1,300 over four years. Non-credit training sessions will be offered later in the year for students interested in learning the basics.
CIC Dean Tom Reichert negotiated the agreement in an effort to prepare graduates for the workforce.
"We’re in a world where the ability to communicate digitally in a variety of forms is a distinctive advantage for students looking for their first job, and it continues to be an advantage as they advance in their careers," Reichert says.
No other college on campus currently offers free Adobe licenses. Access is limited to CIC majors only. The software will continue to be available in college computer labs.
